Super winners and losers (from Yahoo! Sports)

Here is one of them:

LOSER: Phoenix as a host city

It's far too spread out and the downtown lacks life, which means you wouldn't even know the Super Bowl was really happening. The stadium is nice, but it is one of the strangest architectural works you'll see, plopped down in the middle of a suburb that still is a lot of desert. The NFL's decision to stage its fan "NFL Experience" out in a parking lot there didn't help. Oh, and it's not even warm there this time of year.

Um...Glendale was actually the host city so I guess it is the "real loser"?

I remember during the broadcast they were showing overhead shots of downtown Phoenix and saying it was the "host city". It's sad...but there would have been nothing interesting to shoot in Glendale itself. Oh well. Jordin Sparks did a incredible job singing the national anthem. Here's the video if you missed it:
